Rick SpringfieldIf there’s one thing that sets Verrado and its residents apart, it’s our reputation for great community events. In that spirit, we’re celebrating our 10-year anniversary of very Verrado living with what promises to be a memorable Founder’s Day weekend, commemorating a tradition of great concerts, exciting events, and exceptional living in the Southwest Valley.

Since the early days of Verrado, there’s been a sense that our community is unique, fun-loving, friendly, and community oriented. We support this very jazzy, very Verrado vibe with exceptional concert and music experiences for residents and guests. From crowd-pleasing live shows like the B52s in 2005 and classic favorite The Beach Boys in 2008, to contemporary artists Steven Page and Andy Grammer in recent years, it’s Verrado’s community that makes our near decade of great concerts stand out.

• 2005 – B52s
• 2006 – Train
• 2007 – Blues Traveler
• 2008 – Beach Boys
• 2009 – Music on Main featuring Fastball
• 2010 – Big Bad Voodoo Daddy
• 2011 – The Romantics
• 2012 – Andy Grammer
• 2013 – Steven Page

In keeping with our very musical history, we’re planning the biggest party – with the biggest concert – of the decade. We’re pulling out all the stops to celebrate our stage-rocking Founder’s Day concerts with a once-in-a-lifetime performance by living legend Rick Springfield.

Advance tickets are not required for this all-ages block party celebration. All you need are your dancing shoes and community spirit. Grab a bite to eat at one of our dining establishments on Main Street, the Bashas’ deli, or from the food vendors in the park.

Rick Springfield Live: Saturday, April 5 at 8 p.m. on Main Street

Top-40 veteran, best-selling author, and sometime actor, Springfield made music headlines with chart-topping hits, “Jessie’s Girl,” “Don’t Talk to Strangers,” and “The Man that Never Was.” We put a face to his name with his long-running appearance as Dr. Noah Drake on ABC’s General Hospital, while his persona became synonymous with carefree rock anthems and power ballads that provided the soundtrack to good times.

Springfield travels the world headlining with major rock acts and drawing inspiration from legends like Bruce Springsteen. Inviting comparison to performers like David Cassidy and Elvis Costello, his rock star credentials and friendly, approachable charm have endeared him to audiences around the globe. Gear up for a great night of Springfield music and a very fun, very entertaining, very Verrado Founder’s Day, and mark your calendars to bring the family to the show-stopping performance of the decade, right in Verrado’s backyard.
